Most home improvement manufacturers offer a warranty on all their products. Warranties are, in some ways, a guarantee that the product you’re getting is reliable and free of any potential defects. Otherwise, the manufacturer will replace any faulty product at no extra cost to you.
For roofing systems, warranties can be divided into two categories: material and labor. While these two types of warranties differ in coverage and service, they can be subject to certain stipulations that homeowners need to understand and follow.
For a new roofing system, manufacturers will often provide limited warranties that protect your roof against any type of issue that may be caused by the product itself. However, this coverage often comes under the condition that the roofing products were handled, installed or repaired by a certified contractor. Double check with the manufacturer to make sure that your contractor is authorized before signing off on any repair or replacement.
Aside from the materials used in your roofing installation, your contractor might also offer a warranty on their workmanship. This covers you for any problems that may have stemmed from improper installation. Labor warranties can also have limitations so it’s important to know these right from the start. Limitations can include coverage period, dollar limits, and replacement services.
Warranties are not the same as insurance policies. They can be voided if you fail to meet the maintenance requirements of your roof. Additionally, all services must also be performed by professional roof replacement services authorized by the manufacturer.
